I am addicted to kayak fishing as are many folks these days, I predominately fish Central Texas Lakes for lmb, crappie, perch etc.mostly because their closest to home, however I do have a rare trip to the good old Texas coast, for redfish, trout & flounder.

On this perticular ocassion it was early in the morning on a very nice day, sunny, temps in the mid 80's, with 5-10 mph winds. Seemed like the perfect day for fishing from my Wilderness System Ride 135, as I drifted along the banks of Lake Travis slowly working a baby bass topwater with not many takers & those that were needed to add some bulk, so they were released to catch another day. I came around this point & noticed several tree stumps cropping up out of the water, I casted adlacent to them & as soon as my topwater hit the water this 6.2lb beauty smashed it & the fight was on. This particualr fish wasn't going to surrender easily, after what seemed like an eternity & a pretty good sleigh ride, I finally managed to bring her to the kayak.

The wonderful thing aboiut kayak fishing is the peace & tranquility you can experience at any given time out on your favorite lake.
